Intelligence group wants to use wearables to assess agent recruits - The Washington Post

Perhaps the program should have been called Biometric-Optimized Recruit Grouping

"A new proposal by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence recommends using wearable sensors to monitor the physical and psychological abilities of potential intelligence agents. The program, called Multimodal Objective Sensing to Assess Individuals With Context, or Mosaic, would collect data on a series of predetermined traits for a potential recruit. The information would be analyzed to create in-depth evaluations on whether an individual is a good fit for the agency.

A job candidate's psychological profile, cognitive abilities, mental "resilience" and productivity are all mentioned as important data points, as well as overall physical health and wellness. The program would use multiple sensors worn by the recruit to capture data from a variety of different real-life situations."
